Hi Everyone,

I hope everyone is doing great.

I am writing this post to get some advice.

I am a MIF aspirant and recently gave the GMAT and managed to score 700(48Q/38V). Before the exam, the 5 schools I selected to send my score were all top of the league, namely - EDHEC, ESSEC, HEC Paris, Imperial & ST. Gallen. I want to know where I am eligible for the schools and what sort of chances do I have to get into them.

About my profile - I am 22 yrs old, Indian, have done graduation in business. I am also a CFA aspirant, and I have cleared Level 1&2(securing 90th+ percentile in both of them) and also FRM Part 1. I have a low college score, around 60% (which would translate to 2.3 GPA, I suppose.) Regarding work experience, I worked at EY for 7 months (full time) in the assurance department and I have done 2 finance internships (neither of them are IB internships).

Based on the above credentials, I want to know if I stand a chance to get into the mentioned schools and if not, would a better GMAT score help.

I have been having a lot of dilemmas, whether I should retake the GMAT and if a better GMAT score would be able to compensate for my low college score in a better way.

I would be really thankful if any of the experts could help me here.
Regards,
Kanish

Hi kanishsachdeva

- Your overall profile is quite good. Yes, the GPA is slightly low, but then your GMAT, FRM, and CFA (L2) do compensate for that. In addition, you are bringing in work experience from a good, global employer, which also matters positively.
- You should be fine at EDHEC, ESSEC, and Imperial, with your current GMAT score. St. Gallen should work, with a strong app, as well. HEC, although you are not excluded at 700, but a 720+ would be more comfortable. In case particular about HEC, retake. Else, you should be ok - focus on your apps.
- Maybe add LBS to your list as well if it otherwise matches your aspirations.

Hope this helps. Feel free to come back with more queries as needed.

Hi kanishsachdeva,
I am going to give you an honest analysis so that you have a clear idea on the way forward.
You actually have a pretty strong profile - CFA,FRM and the EY experience are strong highlights.
GPA is on the lower end - This can be an issue for Imperial as UK schools are slightly stringent on the academics part. You might want to e-mail the school and confirm your GPA eligibility (Imperial does not require a mandatory GMAT/GRE score).
For the other schools, you can use your application to justify the reasons for the low GPA and highlight other profile strengths.
Your GMAT is pretty decent as such, I would not suggest a retake unless you are sure of boosting your score by 25-40 points.
I would say that you have pretty decent chances at ESSEC,EDHEC , HEC Paris is actually notorious for recruiting only from the top 10 UG colleges of the applicant's nationality, so I would need to know your UG rank gauge your chances over there. St.Gallen is known to have a small class size so again it can be more of a dream school (20%-40% chances).

I have created a robust school selector tool which suggests schools for your profile based on your program, country and profile score ( Profile Score is basically an analysis of your key profile strengths and weaknesses
To access your profile score and see if you stand with your target schools, you can take up a profile evaluation here: https://www.mim-essay.com/profile-evaluation?gmat-pe
